Academy

Join a cohort of practitioners to up-level your skills for working with groups & individuals.

The problems of today’s world will be solved by high-functioning groups with excellent skills in collaboration and innovation. If you work on people issues as a coach, facilitator, leader, or change-maker, you are well aware of the amount of conflict and disagreement that arises even between the most well-intentioned teams and individuals. We need spaces outside of work and family contexts to practice what it means to be part of a high-trust group and to sort through the dynamics of tribalism, power struggles, and differing worldviews.


The Academy is designed as a space of personal growth, professional development, purpose clarification, and camaraderie. It functions as an intentional, small, cohort style learning group for advanced techniques of creating group coherence by using our own cohort’s dynamics as the experiential material for learning and practice. Personal issues will surface and the intention is to help participants clarify their own learning by being a part of the process.


Join this group to practice skills, frameworks, and techniques for creating cultures that bring people together in a higher order without sacrificing individuality.

Some of the techniques we will build capacity in include:

  • Attuning to and working with subtle energy in the context of communication and group dynamics.
  • Spotting and navigating differing values and worldviews in the room.
  • Developing a meditative or pure awareness perspective in support of group process.
  • Working with shadow material and trauma that presents itself
  • Using movement, somatics, and creative intervention in relationship with more rational approaches.

The format:

  • Meeting over 4 months together
  • Once/month large group 90 min workshop via Zoom
  • Once/month small group 60 min workshop via Zoom
  • Cost – $1000
  • *Optional: Bay Area outdoor day long at conclusion

Next cohort: July 15th, 2020 – Oct 15th, 2020

Experiences

Make group music in nature in the spirit of integration and inspiration.

Previous Workshops:


One of the best ways to clear one’s head and heal, is to head out to the wild and make music together. Come join an upcoming experience where as a small group we head outdoors to hike make music, using only the body and voice, in service of healing, celebration, grieving, clarification, and connection. These experiences are held monthly in different parks and wild spaces around the Bay Area and can take the form of play, ritual, ceremony, and practice.


Events are held for roughly 2-3 hrs and involve light hiking and movement combined with circling up to create body music in a facilitated, practice format. Join the Eventbrite group or Facebook group for more information and to stay up to date about upcoming experiences.


(These experiences can also be done indoors at conferences or adapated to specific circumstances. Please contact Spencer directly for more information.)

Note: *Due to Covid-19, experiences will only be held outdoors and be limited in size to 8 people. Masks will be required to be worn while circled in the group.

    I invite you to connect with me personally in a one-on-one container to explore the transformations and blocks that are present in your world. I work relationally and somatically with you to unlock tension and contraction in your body, make sense of your relationships, navigate conflict, and develop practices for spending more time in a place of clarity in your daily life and work.


    I work with executives, leaders, change makers, and individuals who are on a path to have positive impact in their spheres of influence.

    If you are considering a grounded container of support to work through a transition, heal an old pattern, or stabilize a new way of being in your life and leadership, please feel free to reach out and schedule a free initial session to see if we might be a good fit.

    Thank you,

    Spencer
